Rolls-Royce plc has pledged $120,000 to develop an engineering scholarship program at the Georgia Institute of Technology, the company said Feb. 2.
Starting this year, two $5,000 annual scholarships will be offered to sophomores or juniors who meet certain academic criteria. As part of the program, the students selected must maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average and demonstrate good progress toward completing his or her degree program.
The scholarship program will continue through the spring of 2013. Georgia Tech's Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory in the School of Aerospace Engineering will oversee the selection process in consultation with Rolls-Royce.
